London Shanghai Flights

British Airways have introduced it's first new long-haul service for nearly three years.

Restrictions on routes between the UK and China were eased last year, and BAA are keen to take full advantage of the growing markets of India and China.

BA planes will be flying 5 times a week to Shanghai, going head to head with Virgin Atlantic's four flights.
